If you decide to marry, your hen do should be an event you only do once and Jess has recruited her best friends to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Whilst some enjoy a more sedate affair, if Jess's best friend has anything to do with the arrangements, the girls are going to once again party like they're in college.
The five girls start out at a restaurant but soon need a little more excitement and head to a club. Shots are drunk and laughter and dancing fill the night, however the night is cut short when Alice takes a huge tumble on the dancefloor and is momentarily knocked out. Returning to their lavish villa, at the thought of the night almost being at an early end, the group decide to hire a stripper to keep the party mood flowing.
Jess isn't too taken with the 'tacky' idea but soon finds herself participating in the mild debauchery. As Scotty the stripper works the room, Alice finally decides it's her turn to have a little one on one time with the group's latest member and takes a running leap onto the lap of the semi-clothed stripper. As the overeager Alice lands, she knocks Scotty's chair back and he lands awkwardly by the fireplace. The mood in the group turns to panic as they realise the severity of Scotty's condition, Alice has accidentally killed Scott.

There's nothing particularly original about this animated comedy adventure by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors). It has the standard fast-paced snarky tone and too-frantic imagery, but the script is smarter than average, dropping deranged lines of hilarious dialogue into every scene. This gives the conversations an improvisational quality that keeps the audience laughing all the way through, unsure what might happen next.
It's set 20 years after the storks decided that there wasn't enough money in delivering babies, so they shifted to delivering parcels instead. The boss Hunter (voiced by Kelsey Grammer) is now planning to become board chairman, so he brings in his protege Junior (Andy Samberg) as the new boss. To prove himself, Junior needs to sack Tulip (Katie Crown), an annoying human who was left behind when the old business closed. Unable to do this, Junior transfers her to a back mailroom where no one will notice her, except that she inadvertently fires up the baby factory by answering a request from Nate (Anton Starkman) to bring a brother to his parents (Jennifer Aniston and Ty Burrell). So now Junior and Tulip need to deliver this infant before Hunter finds out.
While the plot is fairly predictable, the way it plays out is riotous. The film is a barrage of random asides, unexpected twists and loveably ridiculous characters. A smarmy corporate spy called Pigeon Toady (Stephen Kramer Glickman) is amusingly smarmy, while a pair of bickering arctic wolves (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) add some snarling suspense, even though they're too funny to be scary. Everything is so energetic and colourful that it's difficult to mind that the plot makes very little logical sense. And the loose style of vocal performance gives the whole film a zing of comical anarchy.

Over the centuries Stalks have been entrusted to create and deliver human babies to their new families. Junior's father has built up a successful business with just those deliveries but profits aren't what they used to be and now Junior's father has decided to branch out into package delivery.
Junior is set to inherit the family business and all he has to do is get through the next 24 hours but his ride goes anything but smoothly after he accidently creates a new baby by mistake. Junior asks for help from Tulip, the only human working at Stalks & Co. Tulip is an orphan who's always wanted to find her real mother and father but in the meantime takes delight in helping others fulfil their dreams.
Along the way, Tulip, Junior and their special care package run into all sorts of problems, they're being chased by Pigeon Toady who thinks he knows an unauthorised baby is about to be imminently delivered and also a pack of stealthy wolves who can't decide if they want to eat or adopt the baby.

Meet the 'Modern Family' cast that the producers had originally wanted. We're pleased they didn't get their own way, because we can't imagine a better lineup than the one they have!
We can’t imagine a more perfect cast that the one that Modern Family already has. Every single of one of them has made the roles their own, almost like they were written with them in mind. So you’ll be surprised to hear that hardly any of them were the first choice for the parts! But who did the producers have lined up before the perfect cast finally came together?
Craig T. Nelson was first choice to play Modern Family patriarch Jay Pritchett
Family patriarch Jay Pritchett was originally pegged to be played by Emmy Award winner Craig T. Nelson. Best known for his role as Hayden Fox in Coach and as the voice of Mr. Incredible in the 2004 animated film The Incredibles, producers originally approached Nelson although his pay expectations were too high. Ed O’Neill, who the role eventually went to (and who just IS Jay) explained, “When I read [the script] I thought, ‘Oh boy, this is pretty good.’ And I called my managed and he said, ‘Well, they’re out to Craig T. Nelson.’” We’re grateful that they couldn’t afford Nelson because no-one plays grumpy good guy Jay Pritchard quite like Ed O’Neill. We're also sure that Nelson is kicking himself since Sofia Vergara could have been his onscreen wife! We wonder if he'd known that to begin with it would have made a difference?

The film did alright in box office chart, but not well enough to save Dreamworks' tanking profits.
DreamWorks’ Mr. Peabody & Sherman was widely known as one of the biggest flops of the first quarter this year, but Dreamworks took an even bigger hit than it was originally reported. According to Reuters, DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc reported a first-quarter loss, compared with a year-earlier profit. The poor numbers were apparently due to the low profits from Dreamworks animations’ biggest production this year, Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
Mr. Peabody and Sherman did alright at the box office, but not well enough to save Dreamworks profits.
According to the report, the studio had lost a net total of $42.9 million or 51 cents per share in the January 1 – March 31 period, compared with a profit of $5.6 million, or 7 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 9.3 percent to $147.2 million.

Where the 2011 reboot felt effortless in the way it recaptured that warmly anarchic Muppets humour, this sequel feels like it's working every step of the way. Yes, it's riotously silly and occasionally hilarious, but there are large chunks of the movie that just aren't funny at all, mainly because there's so much emphasis on the tangled web of a plot that the characters get lost in the shuffle.
It starts just as the last movie ended: the Muppets decide to do a sequel based on an idea from interloper Dominic (Ricky Gervais) to take their show on a world tour. But Dominic is actually in league with super-villain frog Constantine (Matt Vogel), who has just escaped from a gulag. So when the Muppet Show lands in Berlin, he orchestrates a swap: Constantine takes Kermit's place in the show, while Kermit (Steve Whitmire) is sent to Siberia under the watchful eye of guard Nadya (Tina Fey). Meanwhile, Interpol agent Jean-Pierre (Burrell) and CIA operative Sam Eagle (Eric Jacobson) are investigating a series of robberies mysteriously linked to Muppet performances in Berlin, Madrid and Dublin.
All of this builds to a head in London, where Constantine is staging an elaborate wedding to Miss Piggy (Jacobson) to distract from his real plan to steal the Crown Jewels. But this plot-strand feels predictable and limp compared to much more interesting character interaction. For example, scenes between Kermit and Fey are a lot more fun as they plan a musical revue with the inmates (and get Trejo and Liotta sing and dance!). And the escalating banter between Sam Eagle and Burrell is hilarious even as it indulges in cheap Euro-jokes.

'Mr Peabody and Sherman' fought off some big hitters at the box office and it's not hard to see why.
'Mr Peabody and Sherman', a story about the world’s most extraordinary dog has become a extraordinary hit with moviegoers as its topped the weekend US box office chart after enjoying an equally successful UK run. The movie may not have received as much promotion as some of its mega box office rivals, but its managed to endear itself to audiences without as much help. So why is it we’re falling head over heels for this animated time travelling adventure?
Everybody Loves Peabody and Sherman!
The characters of super talented dog Mr Peabody and his adopted son Sherman started life on 1960s cartoon, 'The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show'. Peabody was a highly intelligent canine who invented a time travelling machine, the WABAC, to go on epic adventures with his ‘son’ Sherman. An unlikely tale, maybe, but one which captured the imagination of its early audience. Now in 2014 its been given a Hollywood update, which has mostly tried to stay true the original characters. This time the pair are taking on their most epic adventure yet, journey to help fix a hole in the universe which threatens to change history forever. If the fact that there’s a talking dog, who’s smarter than anybody you’ve ever met isn't enough. ‘Mr Peabody and Sherman’ also includes many characters and settings from history like you’ve never seen them before. Under the guidance of Mr Peabody we meet Sigmund Freud, King Tut, Mona Lisa and Leonardo Da Vinci, giving kids a quick history lesson as they enjoy the adventure.
